Ask us anything

Q Jason • 03/17/2020, 10:43:41 PM Hey, I was just wondering what the cross bar width is? Thanks...
A 03/25/2020, 3:11:33 PM Right around 47"
Q Shaun • 04/02/2020, 12:47:44 PM What is the depth of the crossbars? Depth meaning orientation from front of vehicle to the back.
A 04/06/2020, 2:43:37 PM The usable dimensions of this rack is about 54" long by 47" wide.
Q Matthew • 04/02/2020, 11:15:34 PM Is it possible to mount lights that face out to the sides of the truck?
A 04/06/2020, 2:43:37 PM Sure, we recommend using surface mount lights as nothing readily fits in the current holes. Many small rock lights come with angle mounting brackets. Those would work well.
Q Campbell Taylor • 04/07/2020, 11:55:29 PM does only a single row light bar fit on this rack?
A 04/17/2020, 5:09:59 PM Yes, it is designed for a single row bar only. You may be able to make a dual row fit, but it would stick above the top of the rack.
Q Cory McDermott • 04/09/2020, 1:52:55 PM Will this light bar fit your rack, without altering it: Superchips LIT E-Series 40 Single Row LED Combo Light Bar - 71041
A 04/17/2020, 5:09:59 PM Based on the dimensions of "41.8" housing width" from the Superchips website, yes.
Q Ethan • 04/09/2020, 8:40:40 PM Does the roof rack come with tent and other accessories
A 04/17/2020, 5:09:59 PM No
Q Gaeton • 05/04/2020, 1:20:14 PM Hello. What is the height of the rack without the 2.5" space at its highest point? Is there a noise reduction option available? Thanks.
A 05/05/2020, 3:07:07 PM The top of the rack is 2.5" above the surface of the roof when installed. The rack comes with rubber weatherstripping for noise reduction.
Q Shaun • 05/04/2020, 2:17:43 PM Does the rubber guard for the bottom of the wind deflector come standard?
A 05/05/2020, 3:07:07 PM Yes it does. But we also suggest using some 3M paint protection film on your paint underneath it, and that is not included.
Q Alexander Clute • 05/07/2020, 4:25:46 PM If hauling kayaks or anything else long, really: Can weight be placed on the light bar attached to this rack without any problems? Additionally, does the TACOMA BED RACK MODULAR BASE line up with this rack so one would be able to use it for hauling something flat? Or would there need to be additional steps taken for that?
A 05/11/2020, 2:36:52 PM That really depends on the strength of the light and if it sticks above the rack rail surface at all. Our full-height bed rack is lower than the roof rack, but adding our universal cargo basket on top of the bed rack will make them similar heights.
Q Spa Duck Specialties Inc. • 05/10/2020, 9:42:53 AM How much does the access cab roof rack weigh & what is the weight capacity?
A 05/11/2020, 2:36:52 PM Around 38lbs. Toyota rates the Tacoma roof with a factory rack at "Max load 100 lbs evenly distributed." Our rack itself can handle significantly more weight than that, and we've had 200lbs dynamic weight on it without issue, static capacity is certainly well above that. All these weight will be at your discretion as they are above Toyota "recommended" capacities. If you need more information please contact us directly at [email protected]
Q Will • 05/23/2020, 5:55:10 PM Does the shark fin antenna need to be removed from a double cab to install this?
A 05/27/2020, 3:57:49 PM No, it clears fine.
Q Matthew • 06/07/2020, 2:44:01 PM Do you sell the front fairing with the light bar cutout separately so one could add that (swap out the front fairing without the cutout) & a light bar in the future when it might be wanted/needed?
A 06/10/2020, 4:43:34 PM Yes, but you will have to call us.
Q nash Mcsweeney • 06/11/2020, 12:38:43 PM what are the dimensions of the side cutouts, I am looking to install side rock lights. Thank you.
A 06/16/2020, 10:12:23 AM They vary, but roughly 4" x 1.25"
Q Andrew Schulz • 06/12/2020, 3:05:47 AM Hey there, I noticed in the photos that there are the Rigid Scene lights Mounted on the side of the rack. I was wondering if the holes are pre-drilled to mount the light or if additional drilling was required? Thank you
A 06/16/2020, 10:12:23 AM Additional drilling is required.
Q Justin • 07/05/2020, 1:24:15 AM What is the static and dynamic load capacity? And how much static load can the roof of a tacoma handle?
A 07/07/2020, 2:39:07 PM Toyota rates the Tacoma roof with a factory rack at "Max load 100 lbs evenly distributed." Our rack itself can handle significantly more weight than that, and we've had 200lbs dynamic weight on it without issue, static capacity is certainly well above that. All these weight will be at your discretion as they are above Toyota "recommended" capacities. If you need more information please contact us directly at [email protected]
Q Tiffany Goodwin • 09/06/2020, 3:32:42 PM I want to use your system on my Taco. I have a 2019 TRD PRO. I have purchased a roof top tent that is a foot longer than the bed. I want to position the extra foot over the cab. I was wondering how much shorter the access cap roof rack is then the four door.
A 09/09/2020, 3:00:07 PM The access cab rack would not work on the double cab.
Q Glen • 09/07/2020, 8:45:00 PM For the metal supports, what is the metal thickness?
A 09/09/2020, 3:00:07 PM The mounting brackets are .188
Q Taylor Curtis • 09/14/2020, 7:22:11 PM Are these rack compatible with sun/moonroofs or can they be modified to be compatible? I have a 2019 tacoma trd off road with a moonroof.
A 09/24/2020, 11:01:43 AM They work fine will all functions of the factory sunroof.
Q Thomas • 09/27/2020, 12:34:02 PM Would it be possible to mount something like a Thule rocket box to the cross bars for carrying skis?
A 10/01/2020, 1:40:01 PM Sure, but you will probably have to bolt it directly to the rack crossbars as opposed to using the Thule clamps.
Q Frank Martinez • 09/29/2020, 1:12:42 AM does this roof rack interfere with satelite radio service,,? because i had a Body Armour sport utility rack before, and it would interfere with satelite service in certain areas.
A 10/01/2020, 1:40:01 PM I can depending on signal strength.
Q Max • 10/02/2020, 9:59:58 PM I have a 2019 TRD Pro with the Desert Air Intake, it looks like the head of the intake is mounted near where the roof rack would mount. Any idea if this roof rack is compatible with the DAI?
A 10/06/2020, 2:10:22 PM The rack is compatible with that intake. In fact some of the product photos show it with the intake installed.
Q Bruce Locklear • 10/26/2020, 4:05:15 PM Do you sell a light for this rack?
A 10/26/2020, 5:00:50 PM Yes, see: https://www.victory4x4.com/product/7040XX.html
Q Cameron Kent • 11/04/2020, 6:05:07 PM What is max outer dimensions for lights bar for access cab roof rack
A 11/10/2020, 5:20:32 PM Same as the double cab. Will be in the product description.
Q Joel • 12/17/2020, 5:02:43 PM How does this system hold up with a RTT?
A 12/23/2020, 5:37:41 PM We haven't tested that at the shop, but we have had customers have good luck with it.
Q christopher • 01/06/2021, 12:15:08 PM What are the useable dimensions of the access cab rack?
A 01/07/2021, 1:16:37 PM 47" x 38" roughly useable on the access cab.
Q Shaun • 01/21/2021, 8:23:29 AM Two questions. First can I obtain the cutout fairing from you after the fact? Second would this https://caliraisedled.com/products/42-slim-single-row-led-bar fit with or without trimming said fairing?
A 01/25/2021, 11:34:30 AM Yes and yes.
Q Adam • 02/16/2021, 6:35:12 PM Would it be possible to mount a Hi-Life jack to the side of the rack instead of the top? What kind of hardware do I need to mount a Hi-Lift jack in either position?
A 02/26/2021, 11:22:33 AM We do not have a side mount for a Hi-Lift but for the top of the rack you can use our Hi-Lift mounting brackets. victory4x4.com/product/VRKHLM.html
Q Michael • 03/17/2021, 8:48:26 PM Will this roof rack support a roof top tent? Specifically the Tuff Stuff Alpha hard top tent.
A 03/22/2021, 6:22:06 PM We've had customers install RTTs on cab racks, and the rack itself can support the weight. You would likely be above Toyota's recommended capacity on the roof however (150lbs) so this would be at your own risk.
Q Jessie • 04/04/2021, 10:52:23 AM Which kayaks racks are best for this rack or should I just tie it down right on the rack itself? Thank you.
A 04/12/2021, 1:13:17 PM We've done universal J mounts as well as just tied them top down on top of foam on the rack. Both work well.
Q ken • 04/11/2021, 8:01:45 PM will this fit with the sharkfin XM satellite antenna on the top rear of the cab?
A 04/12/2021, 1:13:17 PM Yes.
Q Yu Kanazawa • 05/08/2021, 3:02:38 PM Can rear fairing take some weight? I’m thinking I’ll place my canoe alone and will have to rest one end on the rear fairing with cut pool noodle or something to protect the surface, and lift the other end to push canoe up.
A 05/12/2021, 2:02:55 PM It can take some, yes. Pool noodle or other foam protection is a good idea.
Q jacob • 05/25/2021, 6:58:28 PM does the light bar come with the wiring harness
A 06/04/2021, 10:30:55 AM The lightbar option on this rack ONLY includes a light bar compatible fairing and mount, it does not include the light bar or harness.
Q Rim • 06/15/2021, 2:54:46 PM Hello I purchased this roof rack and love it, but I was wondering what I needed to purchase to mount 2 mountain bikes on top, thank you
A 06/25/2021, 11:53:18 AM There are many options for this, from single fork mounts to full length bike rails. You can contact our tech support team directly for some more info, or your local bike shop may be able to help.

Q Gavin Corbin • 06/23/2021, 1:19:31 AM I assembled the roof rack perfectly and placed it on my roof today. while I am driving down the street the front fairing makes a horrible rattling sound from the wind passing under it. I have it as low as it can go almost touching the roof of the truck with the weather stripping on it but the wind still gets under it. how can I stop the noise?
A 06/25/2021, 12:04:58 PM Please contact our tech support team and we can walk you through trouble shooting.
Q Scott Shepherd • 06/27/2021, 9:07:13 PM How does a light bar mount to this? Where are the mounting holes? What dimensions?
A 07/08/2021, 1:33:12 PM We supply brackets, they mount on top of the front most crossbar. Width is adjustable up to the max we specify.
Q ron • 08/11/2021, 0:44:10 AM Does this just use the 2021 stock roof holes for the mounting bolts?? I saw a video showing you guys drilling into the roof? why not use stock holes?
A 08/12/2021, 4:22:04 PM In the Double Cab it uses the stock holes in the roof, in the Access Cab there are no stock holes so drilling is required.
Q Jeremiah M. McCabe • 08/25/2021, 4:11:39 PM Have you tested fitment with a camper on the access cab, such as a GFC, Vagabond, or Four Wheel for clearance under flex? I would like the fairing for an 05 Tacoma w/ a V2 GFC Camper.
A 09/02/2021, 4:03:54 PM We have not tested with a camper no.
Q Nathan Peterson • 09/08/2021, 3:19:03 AM How is the roof rack mounted to the top of the cab? Will I have to drill into the roof to install it?
A 09/09/2021, 10:29:08 AM Drilling is required on the Access Cab only. The Double Cab bolts directly to factory mounting locations.
Q Eric • 10/11/2021, 11:14:03 PM I Need to carry skis on roof rack. Do u sell accessories for that?
A 10/18/2021, 12:43:31 PM We do not. We recommend the Thule Snowpack 6, they will mount to the roof rack crossbars. Most of Thule's universal mounts should work with our Roof Racks.
Q Aaron Gingrich • 11/28/2021, 5:00:23 PM Can you mount a Thule Force XT l roof box on this rack?
A 12/01/2021, 9:55:17 AM It should work, but we have not tested this.
Q Ron • 11/30/2021, 4:37:42 PM 2016 TRD Double Cab - any suggestions on the from four factory holes? during installation of the roof rack, none of the bolts screwed in all the way. now just a giant gap between the head of the bolt and the mounts. there's nothing blocking the holes and the rear and middle bolts tightened all the way. Got any other bolts for those?
A 12/01/2021, 9:45:26 AM Tech support should be in contact with you to get this figured out!
Q Kristie • 12/08/2021, 4:10:32 PM I have a ‘14 Tacoma with a camper in the back. It’s only about 4-4.5” air gap between the camper and truck roof. Is this rack short enough to clear with a little wiggle room for rough trails
A 12/09/2021, 10:26:01 AM There will not be quite enough room for the rack with that amount of space.
Q Diondre • 01/07/2022, 12:09:43 PM I drive a 2008 access cab Tacoma is there additional drooling that needs to be done to install the roof rack
A 01/12/2022, 11:00:59 AM Yes, you need to drill for the access cab models, please see the installation video.
Q Jason • 01/16/2022, 6:24:49 PM I have a Yakima Skybox 18 and wanting to know if the C clamps will have enough clearance to slide under the crossbar to mount.
A 01/24/2022, 1:56:29 PM The worst the under rack crossbar clearance gets is in the center of the roof and it's about .750", It gets near 2" as you get to the outside edges of the rack. Let us know if we can help with any other measurements.
Q Ernie Villa • 02/20/2022, 6:46:55 PM Just installed my Tacoma double cab roof rack, and was wondering what the rubber plugs in the parts kit is used for?

A 03/04/2022, 2:04:39 PM They are not designed for carriage bolts.
Q Jesse • 03/24/2022, 11:39:47 PM Can this support a rooftop tent with two people staying in it?
A 04/06/2022, 1:16:03 PM We really recommend a bed rack for tents on Tacomas.
Q Austin Salmon • 04/10/2022, 2:00:53 PM What is the maximum depth of the LED bar that can be fitted? For example, the Led bar I'm looking at is 39 3/8" wide and 3.5" deep.

A 04/27/2022, 12:01:31 PM Yakima JayLow with the rubber mounting pads removed, or many universal J-mounts will work on the bars as well.
Q Zach • 05/14/2022, 8:45:20 AM What lightbar would you recommend for this rack?
A 05/16/2022, 9:35:26 AM We recommend the Baja Designs S8 40" LED Light Bar. Check for it on our site!.

Simple yet complicated
(Seattle, WA) | April 12th, 2021
The rack has a pretty straight forward installation however the instructions are not great. There is no parts list with pictures to show what hardware should come with the rack, they send you hardware that you do not need and doesn't fit (like hardware for a toyota 4runner even though i bought the tacoma rack), and the rack requires some fidgeting to get it square. Another issue is that I had to go buy hardware because i didnt have enough washers and the holes for the rack are cut for the 4runner which use bigger bolts than the tacoma so there is a lot of slop unfortunately. I would much rather have a Tacoma only rack so it fits better and big washers are not required. I bought a rigid industries light bar (read not cheap and industry standard in regard to light bars) and the brackets that attach were not the same length. After multiple pictures and emails, i did resolve it with Victory 4x4 and they offered to send out new brackets but due to the design, the light bar still cant come far enough forward on the rack like pictured on their website. I am not sure if they were using an old design from rigid or not but it did not come far forward enough to fit in the ledge as designed. On the positive side, the rack makes the truck have a totally different look and is handy to attach different items to it. On the downside, its going to hurt your MPG as expected and won't be as quiet. Improvements: Lightbar brackets, instructions, better hardware, and come with a rear truck bed light bracket
